One thing I always have with my is orange marker tape or toilet paper at least. If the trail gets spotty or none existent, mark the last spot and start searching.

If all hope seems gone, start searching nearby creeks and water holes.

Hey guys, quick question. What color should the blood be if you have put a good shot on a deer with a bow? Thanks!

Bright red, and hopefully with bubbles in it. This video provides a good example of the blood color you want to see.

Great video Dave! I am about to start my late season and worry about loosing a blood trail, if I'm fortunate enough to get a hit, as it rains a lot here in Oregon during the late archery season. Any tips if there is a light rain?

Light rain, hopefully the blood will stay for a bit. I try to avoid the rain when possible incase of a bad shot. Easier said than done but shot placement is the best advice for rain!

It seems in my experience, if you have killed multiple deer in the same spot , they usually tend to reverse course on that same trail they came in on. They may deviate some but they tend to head for the same area each time. So know that can help a lot, rain or shine. If questionable, just back out and wait. They likely didn't go far, bed down, bleed out some, even if they get up, they shouldn't go far and bed again. At the very least you should find the bed, and probably enough blood , perhaps congealed enough to defy the rain.

Hopefully my rambling was of some help.
